Andy Karandzieff, owner of Crown Candy Kitchen, talks about the shock he experienced while attending the Rolling Stones concert Sept. 26, 2021, at the Dome at America's Center, where Mick Jagger gave the restaurant's BLT a shoutout from the stage.

After posting a social media shot Friday of himself in front of the Gateway Arch, Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger also gave some shout-outs to St. Louis locations during the band's Sunday night concert.

As reported by P-D music critic Kevin C. Johnson in his review of the show, Ol' Mick name-dropped City Museum, Ted Drewes and Crown Candy.

"I don't have any pictures because I'm pretty darn sure he was never in this store," said Andy Karandzieff, owner and chief jerk at the 108-year-old soda fountain and ice cream shop in Old North St. Louis.

Karandzieff said his best guess is that the band, under some indistinct name, ordered food Friday afternoon during rehearsals.

"I was here all day Friday, and we did get a large order — about 20, two dozen sandwiches and a bunch of ice cream and shakes — that wasn't from one of our usual 'large order' customers."

And as much as he appreciated the mention from the stage, Karandzieff said he would have loved to have met Jagger in person.

"I mean, I don't care how big of a hat he would've worn," Karandzieff said. "I'm pretty sure I'd recognize Mick Jagger regardless of any disguise."
